3:05am
i noticed you been eating a lot of oatmeal lately. yeah, it's nutritious, filling, and the extra fiber helps keep the intestinal train running on time. mmm. well, i hope today we're near a gas station squeezing into that construction site porta-potty would not have been my first choice either. i will say that's the fastest i've ever seen you go over a fence. 30 seconds later, you would've seen me go through a fence. if i cannot pay my rent, i will have no place to live! you are killing me! samuel? what?! could i get just a smidge more brown sugar for my oatmeal? abe has promised me a raise every month for two years. but do i ever see an extra dollar in my paycheck? no, i do not! that's rough. could you also grab me a handful of raisins? hang on, mike. i think we got a brother in distress here. i guess we know which one of you will be the first to make detective.
3:06am
carl, stay out of it. what's the problem, man? the landlord has increased my rent, and i'm going to be evicted if i don't get the raise i was promised! you need me to have a word with your boss? carl... what? i can talk to these fat cats. remember, i was our precinct's union representative for two years running. yes, but it was supposed to be a four-year term. and thanks to me, there are now new rules in place about the early removal of a union rep. go tell abe i need to talk to him. samuel, i implore you. do not let carl speak on your behalf. what's the big deal? i'm just going to reason with him. go get abe. carl, you're my best friend in the world, but you're a hothead and a loudmouth. that's just when we have to play "good cop, bad cop." it's actually more "embarrassed cop and source of embarrassment cop." what's the problem? something wrong with your free food? listen, abe, i think you and samuel need to talk, you know? create an open dialogue. is this in any way to be considered official police business? no, just helping out a friend. then bye-bye, johnny law.
3:07am
you going to be a troublemaker? 'cause i don't need a troublemaker. hey, he's just a working man standing up for his rights. i wait tables, i wash dishes, i take out the trash. and all i want in return is the salary increase that you promised me. economic climate was much different when i make that promise. market crash! financial world go topsy-turvy. this is not morgan stanley, this is bacon and eggs! i don't have time for this nonsense. you go bus tables. don't you move. all right, all right. everybody just calm down. oh, oh. now you going to get in my face, too, huh, big boy? never pay for one meal, now you're going to tell me how to run my business? hey, if you want me to pay for my food, i'm happy to. oh, sure. now. nothing but oatmeal and a dinner salad. pay for days before diet. the three milkshake, pork chop, apple pie days. carl, this is none of our business. all sammy wants is a little bit of a raise so he can pay his rent. this is a tough economic times. every american must tighten belt.
3:08am
good luck to you. he's not asking for a handout. he just wants the raise he was promised. walk away. you send the goons with the guns to threaten me, huh? whoa, whoa, whoa. that's not what we're doing. you are bad news. guess what? you don't work here anymore. you're firing me? you can't do that. i can, and i did. you poke stick at cobra, you get the fangs! (hisses) and your days of free breakfasts are over, crockett and tubbs. oh, wonderful. no job, no home. i'm sorry, man. i'd invite you to stay at my place, but... grandma doesn't let me have sleepovers. oh, man, i just wanted some oatmeal. ♪ for the first time in my life ♪ ♪ i see love.

listen, i know things seem pretty grim right now, but i'm sure something will turn up. you know, when i first graduated from cosmetology school, there were no jobs anywhere. and i thought, "oh, my god. i just wasted three weeks of my life." so how did you find work? two words: right place, right time. that's actually four words... you know what? just... anyway, i was dating this funeral director, and one day i was taking a little "disco nap" in a empty casket. you know, like you... like you do. uh-huh. and a client came in and thought i looked very natural, and asked who did my makeup. i popped up and said, "that would be me, hon." well, before that woman came to, i was embarking on an exciting new career-- cosmetician to the recently deceased.
3:14am
see? is those kinds of inspirational stories that brought me to this country. that one made it all the way to africa, huh? can i get you another glass of wine? well, how could i say no to a woman as beautiful as you? oh, my god, you're so charming. i can't believe you're unemployed and homeless. i know you'll find a job, and i know mike is happy to have you stay at his place until you get back on your feet. well, hopefully i can accomplish that in the next 48 hours. you said hit the bricks in two days, right? mike? i'm just trying to keep a fire lit under his ass. oh... he's here most of the time anyway, so you can have his place as long as you need it. whoa, whoa, whoa, let's not get carried away. (laughs) oh, really? you're giving me that face? (giggles)
3:15am
samuel, you're welcome to stay at my place for as long as you need. thank you, mike. you know, sometimes i think your body is so big just to accommodate the size of your heart. oh, what a beautiful way to say "you're fat." so... what is the deal with molly's sister? hands off. she's already got a boyfriend without a job. well, i just thought, if she's half as wonderful as molly is... all right, look. i'm onto you, pal. i see the little game you're playing. what game, mike? i'm simply commenting on what a lucky man you are. yeah, i get it. (imitating samuel): i have so much, and you have so little. is that supposed to be me? (imitating samuel): yes, it is. (normal voice): and don't pretend like that accent doesn't thicken up like gravy when there are women around. you know, perhaps it is better
3:16am
if i just wander the streets till morning. abe's opens at 5:00. oh, wait. i can't go there anymore. look, i'm dropping you off at my place, but we're stopping at the 7-eleven and getting a newspaper so you can start looking for a job first thing in the morning. of course. and you're filling out an application at the 7-eleven. absolutely. and listen, mike, i cannot thank you enough for your generosity. in my homeland, you would be revered as a king. there would be a festival in your honor. women would name their children after you. your picture would be on money. all right, what do you want now, my car? only when you're not using it. all right, what do you want now, my car? discover customersl are getting five percent cashback bonus at the pump... and at many of the places their summer plans take them. it pays to switch, it pays to discover.

3:23am
a career path i'm not comfortable with. repeat after me: "paper or plastic?" "would you like fries with that?" "knock me in the water and win a stuffed bear!" can we table this discussion? my lady friend will be here momentarily. look, samuel, you need to find a job so you can get an apartment of your own and i can have my place back. hey, maybe your evening will go well, and you can move in with your new girlfriend. oh, i don't think that's a good idea. i believe it's important for a man to have his own space, don't you? you know, i'm starting to think you didn't leave africa willingly. you got kicked out. hey. i was a political refugee. you don't know the torment and struggle it took for me to get to america, where i can cherish the freedoms that you take for granted. the fact that they kicked me out is beside the point. man, i can't find anything in this dump. and by "dump," do you mean the house i grew up in
3:24am
that my dead father built? i'm sorry, it's just that i hate living out of a suitcase. you don't have to. i cleared out some closet space and a couple of drawers for you. no, no point in me settling in. as soon as samuel's out of there, i'm back to my place. yeah, but that could be a couple of weeks, maybe a month. and whose fault is that? judging from your tone, i guess you think it's mine? look, molly. i know what's going on here. it's in every gal's nature to want to nest with an alpha male. really? let's... go on. well, as much as i hope one day we'll be living under the same roof, i'm just not ready for that right now. oh, i get it. you're like a wild, untamed stallion and here i am, trying to hook you up to a plow.
3:25am
i said it's not your fault. it's your womanly instincts. i'm not quite following you, but that's probably just because i'm burdened with this crazy lady brain. you know... (blathers) (giggles) look, i'm not saying you're trying to trap me as much as... reel me in. i see. less horse, more fish. 'cause you know what, if i really wanted to trap you, i'd dig a really big hole in the backyard and cover it with moon pies. see, you're getting angry. i told you. i don't blame you. it's your dna. (snoring) looks like one of those giant manatees,
3:26am
sunning itself on a big rock. (snores) you know, that's where the legends of the mermaids come from. sailors would often mistake them for women. well, to me that just sounds like a lame excuse for some bad behavior. (snorts) whoa, where am i? it would appear the doghouse. i don't know what you did to pee on her parade, but if you slept on the couch, you're still in midstream. morning, mom. vince. morning. good morning. morning. i'm guessing time has not healed these wounds. yeah, i picked up on that, too. i-i'd wait till she had her coffee. otherwise she's a real ballbuster. molly: i heard that! it's true!
3:27am

3:28am
i'm sorry, molly. it's not that i don't want to stay with you. i just like having my apartment as kind of a safety net. so do i. i'm not ready for us to live together. well, good. because even if i don't use it, i like knowing it's there. yeah. kinda like the milky way you keep hidden behind your ice trays. you know about that. i've replaced it three times. i've replaced it four times. hey, you don't keep one here, do you? no. joyce: in the vegetable crisper! mom! but it's our job to make them say something interesting. so how about this weekend
